MGV – Machine Guns Vegas

All I can start off with is, DO IT. You’ll have a “blast”… Part of my husbands bday present ( delayed trip as his birthday is in November) was his choice to either race his favourite car or go to the gun range. Secretly I was hoping he’d choose the gun range because I’ve always wanted to shoot a hand gun. Now I can proudly say I have, whilst admitting that the loud noises of the guns make me jump haha. I booked us in at MGV-Machine Gun Vegas under the Urban Assault  Experience for $99 each. Michael added an AK-47 for $54.95, a Desert Eagle .50cal for $65.00 and an RPK for $59.00 to his package. Well worth it. We got picked up at our hotel in a comfortable air-conditioned van, decked out with machine guns on top, and an awesome/friendly driver (don’t forget to always tip your drivers, especially for completely shuttle service). The drive to the compound was about 20 mins (there was one other pick up as well as traffic). When we arrived …

My lovely spiritual sister Ruby Fremon is a transformational life coach as well as an energy healer and will be in Vancouver Saturday November 7th, 2015 hosting a workshop from 11 am – 1 pm Further information can be found at https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/own-your-story-vancouver-ruby-fremon?trk=prof-post The growth I have seen arise in Ruby over the years I have known her is very telling of her work. She has helped many, including myself come to terms with accepting and creating positive change in life and taking full control of your own actions. Living authentically and self-empowerment is the major gains I’ve received from our relationship. I encourage you all to take a look at what she has to offer and step outside of your comfort zone. Especially, if you find yourself in a never-ending cycle/rut and are looking for a new direction to take/new approach that works.
